This show was a tapers nightmare.

There was quick flip after Loser in order to save the first notes of Rooster.

In the second set, with the first notes of Estimated, you knew that more than likely Eyes was to come, and both certainly weren't going to fit in the +/- 10 minutes you had left on the first side of the second set tape. Once you made the flip, depending on how much drums you kept, the B side was gone at the end of Casey Jones. Luckily the Encores fit on the remainder of the 1st set B side.

Sometimes it was easy, sometimes not.

The Greek theatre was a special place for numerous reasons. relatively small, AMAZING acoustics which is why there are so many good/excellant aud tapes from there over the years. it was a 'home' show. you had the awesome claremont hotel just up the road and it was always a BIG party.

Its like Ramrod use to say 'there's the Bay area, New York then everywhere else.'

im also curious if that explains why theses SBD tapes are some of the best of the year with good fat bass and bass response. although a lot of the SBD's from the 2nd half of 82 are good, bass, good mix, etc

This was the first show after the avalanche at Alpine Meadows where we had all of Jakes family there. Got word through a couple of different methods to see if they would deadicate Estimated Prohept to Jake which Bobby did you have to listen closley at the begining but he did remember to do it. Great Day for all of us after a hard winter

Thanks cloud2013. I will listen to this tonight. I quit writing reviews last year after a couple hundred or more. Now I see people wrote things like this douche below me is a moron when all I did was give an honest and kind opinion. It's funny how the anonimity of the internet makes these kind of people courageous. If I could I'd delete every review I wrote. These negative fools can't be true deadheads. I never met any jerks at GD shows.

This is a very nice, well recorded and mixed (Thank You CM) 1982 show.
The first set is great. IMHO a great Shakedown Street and Brent singing Red Rooster. Let It Grow is not my favorite first set closer but this is also a great performance.

The second set starts with a less strong SB/FOTM but moves along nicely. Ship Of Fools -> Estimated Prophet -> Eyes of the World is very tight. We COULD live without another CJ but even this one used as the closer is nicely sung by a very relaxed JG. Encore is a fun Rolling Stone: I can't get do (Satisfaction) and the much loved Breakdown Palace.
Must Hear Concert.

Subject: Not sure why I gave this 5 stars
I'm not sure why I originally gave this 5 stars. Maybe the novelty of the biker? I don't know. Some nice songs in the set, but I'd like to revise this.

Not my favorite setlist, but some may enjoy it more if these are some of their favs. Certainly a good show, but nothing blew my mind.
Reviewer: Silverstein - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - April 25, 2009
Subject: Motorcycle drums
This is one of the Greek Theater shows where they had a biker in there during drums and space. Mickey seems to be telling the guy to let it idle "leave it there." It's a nice clear sounding recording but like the previous motorcyle Not Fade Away in '78 to my ears it sounds like it gets over-saturated in the louder parts (a motorcylce revving being a "louder part"). Still marvelous to hear.
